Dow, Alden Ball (1904–83). American architect. He worked with F. L. Wright in 1933 before setting up his own practice. Most of his works are in or near Midland, MI, and have been noted for their influences from or rejection of Wright's designs. Midland Country Club (1930), built before he moved to work with Wright; his own studio, Midland (1935), much influenced by Wright; and the Midland Center for the Arts (1970), which represents the complete rejection of Wright, may be cited.
